The lovely Alison at Teavivre sent me a second batch of teas to test. I had so much fun with the first lot that I couldn’t believe I didn’t find time before now to try these.
As with my first review, please bare in mind the following is my layman explanation of these teas. You can view the Teavivre website for any health benefits, caffeine content, their origin and pricing etc.
First up was the Tie Guan Tin Oolong Tea (Anxi Monkey Picked Ma Liu Mie)
Second up was the Goddess Oolong Tea (Tie Guan Yin Iron)
Next up was the Tie Guan Yin Oolong Tea (Taiwan Monkey Picked Ma Liu Mie)
The leaves of this tea didn’t seem as tightly packed as the others and had a beautiful smooth soft taste – I think this may be my favourite.
Finally it was the Wuyi Rock Oolong Tea (Da Hong Pao Big Red Robe)
The leaves of this tea were very different to the others and was the only one which had a slight brown tinge to it once brewed. It is regarded as the king of Oolong among all the Chinese Oolong Teas and one of the China’s Top Ten Teas.I am not sure my palette is sophisticated enough for these teas but I thoroughly enjoyed doing my own little tea ritual all the same.
I was not remunerated or asked to do a review on these teas. I did a this post as a courtesy after receiving the tea.
